Coro Summer Internship in Public Affairs
The Coro Kansas City Summer Internship in Public Affairs is offered through a partnership with Park University’s Hauptmann School for Public Affairs. The 10-week program is open to recent college graduates and to sophomores, juniors, seniors, and graduate students from any college or university. Coro Kansas City pays summer tuition for program participants and provides a stipend.
The purpose of the internship is to develop future community leaders through exposure to community issues, leadership development, civic leaders and organizations. This structured internship program is demanding, full time, and requires an interest in public affairs. Each intern is assigned an individual internship in each of the five sectors of business, government, labor, media, and non-profit organizations. Participants are immersed in these five internship sectors, allowing them to learn experientially and establish significant professional contacts. In addition to individual placements, interns enjoy a broad range of leadership and professional development opportunities.
